Democratic governors huddle in Chicago: policy/fund-raising conference

| No Comments

Gov. Pat Quinn is hosting a Democratic Governors Association policy/fund-raising conference kicking off Tuesday night at a rooftop reception across from Wrigley Field, where the Cubs are playing the Tigers.

The event attracts the DGA's top donors and others, with the briefings also a chance for special interests to network with governors. Economist and columnist Paul Krugman will speak at the Friday breakfast at the Allegro Hotel in the Loop.

The event is largely underwritten by corporate sponsors. The DGA runs different donor "clubs" with different contribution levels: Patron's Council, Founders' Circle, Chairman's Board Members, Governors' Circle.

Governor Martin O'Malley
State of Maryland * DGA Chair

State of North Carolina * DGA Vice Chair

Governor Jay Nixon
State of Missouri

Governor Brian Schweitzer
State of Montana

Governor Peter Shumlin
